Happy New Year to you, and fabulous 2017 from all of us at Amara Conservation.

As I sat here this morning opening the mail, I came across this unsolicited donation. What a nice surprise that from seeing us in action 2 years ago this family member was moved enough to send us this donation from afar! I can’t tell you how much we all appreciate their help for our education work with communities in Tsavo.

It was sent to us the end of December 2016 and reads:

“Dear Amara Conservation,
Enclosed is a donation from my family Foundation. While studying and working in Kenya and Tanzania in 2014 I saw firsthand the incredible conservation education you do in Tsavo. It is our hope that this donation may be helpful to you in all your incredible endeavours.”

One of our objectives here at Amara is to strive to prevent a world without elephants. We do this by disseminating knowledge to people and schools living close to the wild. We saw the significant need for people to know and value the wild as their own, and hence the need for education on wild and environment. We believe in the power of information.

We would like to thank the Alden Family for their support – it is the help of people from all over that keeps us going. Your support will help us reach many more people in the vast Tsavo Conservation Area who urgently need information on the importance of the wild.

Thank you! You have made a real difference in the lives of the people we serve.
